Safeway's Bargain Meals of the Week - sales cycle of 05/13 - 05/19/09 (with leftover makeovers)

Bargain Meal of the Week

I am sorry to have missed posting some bargain meals for last week’s sales cycle. However, I am back this week and happy to be part of the Bargain Meals of the Week feature at $5 Dinners! Here are a few thrifty meal ideas for this week based upon Safeway’s advertised sales running this week (05/13 through 05/19/09).

Be sure to check out your store’s print ad as there are some great sale prices this week on cereal products (see bottom of front page). Another item I’m going to make sure I pick up this week are Nabisco Snak Saks – these are on sale for $1 per bag and they make the perfect on the go snack! We like the mini Oreos and Nutter Butters as well as the Animal Crackers and Teddy Grahams.

Meal #1 – Crock pot beef roast with potatoes and carrots
Items to buy on sale for this meal:
Rancher’s Reserve Beef 7 Bone Chuck Steak - $1.47 per pound

Leftover Makeover – shred up any leftover roast and serve with BBQ on buns for easy sandwiches a second night! Add a bag of Doritos for $1.77 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday only sale price)

Meal #2 – Grilled steaks with corn on the cob and baked potatoes
Items to buy on sale for this meal:
Rancher’s Reserve Beef Top Sirloin Steak, boneless – $3.47 per pound
Corn on the cob – 50 cents per ear

Leftover Makeover – cut up any leftover pieces of steak and use for beef fajitas

Thank you so much for stopping by this week! Check back next week for more great ideas using the Safeway’s current grocery sales. And, check back throughout this week for more ideas creating affordable meals with other store advertised specials!
